What to Wear in my Blue Bel Air

by: Lee Metsalo

Damned if I can locate itagain, but this was inspired by picture of a 50ís turquoise BelAir, the colours, the lines in the upholstery. The car isbigger than two of my kitchen, but I digressÖ.

I havenít done squarestitch in a long time, and decided this would be the piece to try itwith. The bezel settings lend themselves to many mediums: Idecided to try it with beads. I stitched my piece together andfinished the threads off. Test fit your piece to the setting,make sure you can fit it in properly before applying the glue.

Put an even, not too thick layer of glue in the bezel setting. Curve your beaded piece a little bit so the centre is higher than theedges. Fit the edges in, line them up, then press the littlehump down in the middle so it squishes in that way. No curvedup edges.

Let the glue dry, and then add the small eyepinnedlinks and add your clasp Do you have the turquoise poodle skirtto go with it?

Tools used: Needles,E6000, two pair flat pliers, cutters
